cloudSMART

Manchester-based cloudSMART provides a complete office print and post solution service that saves their customers valuable time and money.

In January 2010 cloudSMART contacted ANS having planned an aggressive expansion strategy; they needed an IT system that was able to respond to a sustained period of internal growth. With new staff members forecasted to be joining the company as the predicted growth occurred, cloudSMART required a quickly scalable infrastructure solution that would allow them to speedily and effortlessly incorporate new users into their existing IT system without having to pay for spare capacity in the meantime.

ANS offer cloudSMART a defined service-level agreement for the availability of their customer facing and internal operational systems; this has resulted in a huge improvement on their previous performance on availability.

ANS’ experience in migrating customers from legacy platforms to new solutions meant that cloudSMART was able to make the transition to the Managed Infrastructure Service without any business impact.
  • They no longer have to spend any time internally on maintaining, upgrading or solving issues with their infrastructure.
  • This has allowed their team to concentrate their attention on revenue-generating activities and the innovation of their products and services.
  • They also now have the ability to readily deploy test and development environments, replicating existing software applications.
  • This allows them to validate new code releases prior to ‘go live’ while removing any impacts on the live environment and improving the service quality offered to their user base.
  • The service orientated management and information features provide management reports on the IT usage.
  • ANS consultants, all highly-qualified in the requisite technologies, worked with cloudSMART’s IT department to ensure that the project was completed quietly and discreetly.
